On this week’s episode we start with some Canadian vape news coming out of Nova Scotia and then move on to discussing prohibition and overregulation in a broader context. We talk about whether compromise with the anti-vaping side is possible and measures that we can take to protect and grow the community.

In this episode we rant a bit about public health officials. If they focused on what they are meant to do we'd all appreciate that (and we'd be better off).
We also discuss some other issues in recent vape news from around the world.

With all the different vape devices available these days, mechanical mods are still quite popular. On this episode I sit down with Brandee and discuss mechanical mods. We talk about the things we like about them as well as some of the things we don't. We explain what some of the terms mean and throw in a little trivia as well.
On this I episode of Spinning Wires I sit down with Chris AKA Overdrip to discuss DIY e-liquid. Chris talks about the methods he uses and how he arrives at some of his recipes.

Batteries have been around for a long time, but it's only relatively recently that we have had the Lithium Ion cells used in our vaping devices (and other places). We go deep on batteries: from their history, to their composition, different configurations and of course practical safety tips.

SW3: We’re calling this episode Tool Talk. At the height of rebuildable popularity, I was building about a thousand coils a month for our own shop and others across North America. In this episode, I cover off the tools that you’ll need to get started on building and some that you might want to level up your tool collection. I’ve included a few build tips as well.
SW2: In this episode we take a light hearted look at a serious issue: the massive scale gaslighting of the vape community by lobbyists, the media, and some public health officials. Kick back with a vape and a bevvie and see if you can spot the number of times people have tried these very tactics on you.
